Picking items in this order, gets you further...

I'm still trying to figure it out, but wanted you all to know. Smile

eta: subject description.
edited to remove "21" from topic as it appears that "23" is the winning number.

Any hints on how to win the card game? Apparently you need to do that first.

Honestly, all I know for sure, is that the game was won from the 20 card being dealt on it's side. I thought that happened when I spread the rice over the four sections, but I can't replicate it.

Here's the link to the swf itself (though I suggest trying to win at the game legit):

So when you get a successful divination it brings you to a page with 20 mayan symbols, a button on the bottom left that takes you to the divination page, a password box in the middle bottom, and a button on the right that "processes" your "divination."

I got an error message after that.

After clicking the right button, while your divination processes, there appear to be about 20 text boxes, each one located under where the symbols were.

the fth portion of the game

Well I tried the fth game and while I'm not sure why, a few times of gotten past the throwing of the 4 round and 2 square stones.

There is a faint gray circle under the message that you press to continue.

You are then presented with 5 rows by 5 columns of combinations of 4 round and square stones which change as you mouse over them. They look like cartoon televisions with Mayan symbols in them Not sure what to do from here. You have a faint gray circle on the bottom left and bottom right of the screen. When I pressed the left one, I returned to the game described at the top of this post.

HTH

it appears there is not one password box but 5 of them.

I filled each with the five words "tommy tooman it will happen" and it said it rejected my divination and to try again.

Me too when I was entering just one password in the middle. When I tried filling in 3, then 5 boxes, it rejected my divination instead of going to the "undefined" webpage.

Here's what I have observed so far:

On the page with the calendar glyphs they are all in order, but they don't always start with the first glyph. Which glyph they start with seems to be random. Some glyphs have just rice and some also have squares. This never changes. The glyphs with squares are Imix (1), Akbal (3), Muluc (9), Eb (12), Ben (13), Men (15), Etznab (1Cool and Cauac (19). Akbal has two sqaures. Also, there may be a couple of hidden text entry fields. If you start at the first one and use tab to go through them the cursor sort of disappears between a couple of them, so you have to tab twice. Other than that, I got nothing. (Except a research paper due in 10 hours that I haven't even started.)

if you click on the glyphs, and hold the left mouse button down as you move to the next "pile", the glyph you were just on stays on screen.

Hmm, the five text boxes could be for a long count date (29 november 2007 is 12.19.14.15.11). When its 'processing' there are 20 fields, just as mortality described. The bottom right circle at this stage does nothing, so I imagine that it activates if you put in the right passwords in the boxes - tried putting in the names for the glyphs, but that didn't work, still got the 'undefined' page.
